Music of the Night

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation

Darkness stirs and peaks imagination

Silently the senses, abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor

Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender

turn your face away from the garish light of day, turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light

and listen to the music of the night

close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams, purge your thoughts of the life you knew before, close your eyes let you spirit start to soar...and you'll live as you've never lived before

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you

Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you

Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind

In this darkness that you know, you cannot fight..

The darkness of the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world

Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before..

Let your soul take you where you long to be

Only then... can you belong to me

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication

Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation

Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in

To the power of the music that I write..

The power of the music of the night

You alone can make my song take flight..

Help me make the music of the night
